Belvedere

Available on FilmRise
Reality TV is so contrived and rehearsed that it is far from real, yet viewers seem glued to the construction of reality and the voyeuristic pleasures these programs offer. In this film by Ahmed Imamovic, the harsh reality of living in Bosnia and Herzegovina is juxtaposed with that of the Serbian reality series Big Brother. Ruvejda lost her husband, her son and her father to the Srebrenica genocide and while mourning their loss must go on living some 15 years later. She awaits DNA testing of the mass graves near the Belvedere refugee camps in order to identify her loved ones and experience some sense of closure. During this same period, her other son Adnan competes as the token Bosnian on Big Brother. Both hope to escape their given reality.
